September is interstitial cystitis awareness month. Interstitial cystitis (IC), also known as bladder pain syndrome (BPS), is a “chronic bladder condition resulting in recurring discomfort or pain in the bladder or surrounding pelvic region” (CDC). It is considered to be a neuromuscular disorder involving the bladder and pelvic floor muscles and nerves.

If you are having ongoing issues please visit your GP for a referral to a urogynaecologist for further assessment or medical management.
